Hm, this being post 3I, how can he NOT believe in fantastical elements? He experienced them himself. But I guess that depends on the Impact-scenario itself.

Komm Süßer Tod, go back to sleep afterwards.

Re: Father Brother Lover Mother [Canon Divergence / MisaKawo]

Hah! I was right with the chapter name. Let's dig in! Honestly, I got no clue why you are unhappy with this chapter. I've only read it only once, so maybe with more scrutiny I will manage to convince myself that it sucks, but ... dunno, time will tell. Edit: I already went into it thinking "...

Re: AVANT 1 italian analysis & Rebuild's message

and therefore I consider it hierarchically less important than the content level. Oh sure, that is always the case. But still, the actual story informs how the metaphoric level is percieved. A vehicle it may be, but if your vehicle drives off a cliff while somebody in it screams a message how nothi...

Re: AVANT 1 italian analysis & Rebuild's message

Life doesn't end at fourteen Of course not - but since every living thing was made into LCL, the disruption to the ecosphere is severe enough to endanger life on the planet as a whole. Not so speak of the aftereffects of Rei crashing back down to earth, the dissolution of people into LCL at inconve...

Re: AVANT 1 italian analysis & Rebuild's message

Also in [the case of EoE] the message is more thematic metaphorical than narrative. That depends entirely on your point of view. If you focus on the narrative, EoE works just as well as a cautionary tale that vowing to accept and change yourself is meaningless if you come to the conclusion too late...

Re: Eva Series weapon morphing into Lance of Longinus

Being a replica (plus the shapeshifting) points to it being more than the simple physical shape that matters - otherwise, an oversized tuning fork would accomplish the same goal and then one has to wonder why the Evas use other weapons at all. The replicas are "alive" as well - in ooken-fo...

Don't worry about not responding to everything - I've got too much free time at my hands, I guess you are in a much less enviable position.

Re: Fanfic Story Ideas, Mk. II

I am curious if this has been done already: Eva, but from the perspective of either the lower level employees of NERV or the general populace. I know of one Forum-RPG that covered the latter, basically people reacting to fictional news reports, eye-witness accounts and insider leaks, but no story co...

Re: Fanfic Story Ideas, Mk. II

I already explained in what context I said those words, but I will do it again: In "The Way Out Is Through", Asuka is raped multiple times . I think, the first of those rapes, done to her in that story , would already be enough to completely break her - precisely for the reasons you stated...

Nice, two chapters at once! Let's get right to it! Authors notes first: There must be buildings hanging out: They would have been retracted once Armisael showed up, and then they need to still be in place so that the crater left by Rei's self-destruction could be filled with water. There are no ...

Re: [Fic] Crying Man (Or, How Dr. Katsuragi Found God)

As promised in the FBML thread, here are my thoughts on Crying Man. Reading this turned out to be a much slower process than anticipated. A hundred thousand words, easy peasy, I thought to myself, before realizing that it is quite intense and I find myself rereading passages again and again to savou...

You're welcome! Hm, well, it is pretty threadbare, but that doesn't detract from it. It's first person (or rather, deep-third person, or whatever that's called) and present tense, so in a sense, it's a direct representation of the characters thoughts. The directness of the wr...

Re: Character Heights

Growth is taken from western charts, as those were the only I could find (and read). Should be accurate for Asuka anyways, and if averages in general are lower that just moves them closer to the norm but doesn't really change their growth pattern by more than a centimeter, roundabout. Shinji's still...

Re: Character Heights

Taking those heights from the picture above (with the -3 subtracted for Misatos height) that would give the following growth chart for the characters if we assume they stay in their percentile (both of them are at the extreme lower end of height and weight that is still considered normal): Shinji: 1...
